Stressed out being exposed to STD

3 weeks ago I had a exposure while on a nuru massage. The lady rubbed her vagina on penis and came in contact with the vaginal fluid. I am not sure if the penis had slipped in. Now I am having swollen lymph nodes in neck and grion for past 3days. A week and a half after exposure I had night sweats and chills so my doctor suggested STD screening and it came back negative. I am stressed and freaking out now.. Is swollen lymph node a ARS symptoms, I don't have a fever.

Intercourse is hard to miss and only unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse results in possible transmission of HIV.  Touching the area with your penis or getting vaginal secretions on your penis outside the vagina is not going to transmit HIV.  Symptoms are not used to diagnose HIV.  Ever.  

So, you didn't have intercourse, vaginal or anal and you didn't share IV drug needles.  So, you do not need to worry about HIV.
